Cheeky Kid has been watching anime and reading manga for as long as he can remember. Doing so takes him to different worlds.

No matter what year, there’s always a big number of titles coming from the harem genre. In fact, even 2015 wasn’t left untapped!

Since I watched a lot of anime shows from 2015, I learned which ones are recommendable and which ones are not. Hence, this list came into existence! Mind you, this list has its exclusive focus on the exciting and titillating titles of the harem genre.

Before I forget, please leave in the comments anime titles from 2015 that I might have unknowingly skipped but you think are worthy to be mentioned. All recommendations are highly appreciated!

The 5 Best Harem Anime of 2015

  1. High School DxD BorN
  2. Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls
  3. Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend
  4. Shinmai Maou no Testament
  5. Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo (Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches)

1. High School DxD BorN

Ah, a classic has returned for its third season. As usual, you know the drill! After all, it’s High School DxD that we’re talking about here!

If you’ve been spectating High School DxD since its first and second seasons, then there’s no reason for you to miss its third season—High School DxD BorN. Accordingly, I’m pretty sure everything is self-explanatory. Okay, I’ll still say it: “High School DxD is one of the most popular ecchi/harem anime in existence!” Having said that, I hope all your doubts have disappeared.

I for one have enjoyed watching High School DxD BorN in its entirety—if you know what I mean. Of course, it possesses some subtle differences with regard to its previous seasons. Yet, it still managed to carry and maintain its own legacy.

As compared to other titles from the same genre, High School DxD actually has a decent plot, a trendy soundtrack, and fancy visuals. If you’re new to this anime, then I suggest you watch its previous seasons. If not, then go on and rouse yourself with High School DxD BorN!

2. Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls

Back in 2015, Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls was the anime show I was madly excited for, every single week. And mind you, I’m not just talking about the fan-service it caters. Frankly speaking, this show is really good. It’s funny, unique, and sensational! It’s unlike many other shows from the same genre it lounges on.

While Monster Musume is certainly not for everyone, it has an idiosyncratic plot that is just begging to be consumed. I mean, there’s literally a multitude of monster girls in this show; and that’s like a dream come true for some. I’m not even exaggerating or just hyping for the sake of hype. Monster Musume indeed has monster-based girls (e.g. harpies, lamias, centaurs) with peculiar characteristics, which makes everything so interesting and intriguing for an anime show of the harem genre.

In Monster Musume, there’s actually a setting that supports the fan-service nature of the show. Everything flows naturally and is justified. That’s why this show is worth the watch!

Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend

3. Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend

If I were to pick the most refreshing harem anime of 2015, I would, without a shred of doubt, pick Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend!

Even though there’s nothing spectacular about the plot of Saekano, it still manages to shine with its array of fascinating characters. Honestly, I didn’t care much about its plot. It’s generic, yes, but this show is more like a slice-of-life/harem anime rather than a full-blown fan-service fest!

I find Saekano interestingly light and warm. It’s easy to watch and very relaxing. As a matter fact, when I watched this show, I felt like I was experiencing life just as the characters are. It felt like I was chuckling with the characters, enjoying the whimsical moments of youth, and indulging in the bits of awkward yet gratifying moments.

Overall, Saekano is a fairly simple show. It is mild yet so enjoyable. If you want to take a breath from all the over-exaggerated and over-dramatized anime in the current fad, then Saekano might suit you well.

Shinmai Maou no Testament

4. Shinmai Maou no Testament

If you like High School DxD, then you will surely fall in love with Shinmai Maou no Testament. After all, this show almost looks like a mirror-image of High School DxD. It even gives off the same impression. And from my perspective, that says a lot!

In Shinmai Maou no Testament, we have a guy whose life is about to change following the appearance of his two, new female siblings. Unbeknownst to him, both of them are not what he expects to be. Well, it’s not like he is also actually what he appears to be. But, the most important thing is—they all have to live with one another and indulge in new, tantalizing experiences!

As I’ve already stated that Shinmai Maou no Testament is very much similar to High School DxD, I believe that there’s no further need to explain anything else. Since High School DxD is one of the most popular ecchi/harem shows in existence, then you should already know what to expect from Shinmai Maou no Testament.

5. Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo (Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches)

After learning about the translation of Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo, which is Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, I thought—“Yup, this is definitely a harem anime show!” And I was correct! But, what unfolded before my eyes was more than what I expected!

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo isn’t your regular anime show from the genre in question! Well, it isn’t also that special or extravagant, but it is certainly worth the watch. Its story arouses curiosity. It’s oftentimes light and funny. It’s serious and mysterious when it needs to be. And its characters are all well-developed and relatable!

In my own conceit, Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo is really fun to watch. It isn’t pretentious, and it develops quite well. It is, after all, a romantic comedy anime with lots of elements from the harem genre and some components from the supernatural genre. All in all, I am largely contented that I gave this show a try back then.

Which of the titles listed is your favorite 2015 harem anime?
